Just Add Ink #383 - Cake!!!Hello crafty friends,
Hope your day is going well. The teen kindly reminded me today, that it was only 2 months until Christmas! Seriously?! How did that happen? My Mum is flying over from NZ for the first time in five years, to spend Christmas with us. I had planned to make so many decorations - so far, I've completed nudda - nought - nil!! I have at least started some Christmas shopping (the part I dislike the most) and not wrapped a thing (normally, the thing I enjoy the most about Christmas) Fingers crossed as we move into November, I will embrace the Chrissy spirit and smash out all my planned creations.
Its challenge time over at Just Add Ink. This week, Chloe has asked that we Just Add Cake. Yep CAKE!! Such a fun theme! Who doesn't love cake. And oh my....you have got to see all the fabulous creations the JAI Design Team have shared. Browsing through the gallery made me hungry for CAAAKKKKKEEEE!!!!!
As usual I made two cards for this challenge....well, actually I made three but the third got binned due to it resembling something a cat would vomit up! Both cards use a stamp set that came with a craft magazine. I cannot recall the publication, as I biffed it soon after. Should have thrown the stamps too, they are poor quality but I just adore the food cart!! The first card has an embossing paste brick wall background. The chef, cart and cakes were coloured using my new Stampin' Up! Blends. The chef is from the Birthday Delivery set and the birthday sentiment from the At Home with You stamp set.
This card has used the same freebie set, stamped multiple times on two lines, to replicate a cake shop window. The Powder Pink awning was created using the scalloped edge die from the Colourful Seasons bundle. Again the images were coloured using my new alcohol Blends. For something different I stamped the sentiment multiple times and adhered with mini dimensionals across the front panel.
